today i learned – weds 17th jan 2018

for today’s fact, we’re heading the swimming pools of finland! πŸŠπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

if you get nervous around a good ole speedo … this isn’t the post for you πŸ˜…

#tdil the reason why men have to wear tight swimwear in finland πŸ™ˆ

to start, let’s just clarify the rule that forms the basis of today’s fact – basically, in finland, men cannot wear baggy shorts when they go swimming … the only things allowed are speedos and tight shorts.

now, the rule doesn’t come around because the peeps of finland like everyone to pretend to be a professional swimmer πŸ˜‚ it actually all comes down to hygiene πŸ‘πŸ»

when you look into their reasoning for banning baggy shorts, it makes a lot of sense. you see, baggy shorts can be worn anywhere whilst you’re on holiday … meaning that they pick up all sorts of dirt and germs, which are then transferred into the pool 😷

there’s also the issue of all of the random gubbins that collects in the short pockets throughout the day πŸ˜…

whilst men are limited to just speedos and tight shorts, women are free to wear whatevs πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ … as they don’t tend to wear baggy shorts anyhew 😊

and there you have it πŸ™ŒπŸ» the reason why you can’t wear baggy shorts in finland 😁 yaaaaay!

time for bed 😘
